DETAILS

'No more of love. The sun doth burn my face, I must remove.'

Venus is in love with Adonis. One morning she finds him out hunting, and wildly confesses all.

Affairs of the heart, though, are never simple. And love and hunting are dangerous occupations.

Having captivated audiences throughout the year with their reworkings of opera and drama, the New Renaissance Collective returns to its artistic home this December for its long-awaited production, Venus and Adonis.

Adapting Shakespeare's strange, dreamlike poem and the only surviving fragment of Monteverdi's lost opera l'Arianna, the NRC is proud to present a show devised by its artists.

Showing for a limited run of just three nights, come and experience this bold new adaptation from one of London's most experimental interpreters of the classics.
